  1. Past hour
  2. Bluegill and perch are the primary forage in the waters I fish, I have yet to see a live gill or perch change their color so I stick with something that mimics them. If that doesn't work a Rapala gold/chrome pattern works great.
  3. I like the red craw Super Spot, and the Sexy Shad Strike King Red Eye Shad. The red craw super spot has been my best producer so far this spring.
  4. I use white, green pumpkin, and black/blue. I very the trailers, but match them most of the time. I use the green pumpkin more on clearer water, black/blue in stained water, and white everywhere. I use twin tail grubs, fluke style trialers( zman razor and Zako), and a few others to see what they are wanting. It does change the action and profile of the bait. I throw most of my chatters in water under 8 feet deep. Throw them on weed lines, over the tops of weeds, slow roll the on bottom, parallel to docks and laydowns (they do snag pretty bad in wood), and really anywhere I can get them through.
  5. chrome with blue has always been a winner
  6. I fish in a lot of different gears when I’m out. Sometimes it takes me a few casts or short period of time to get as slow as I should be fishing. Height of the summer have fished Carolina rigged in 20-25 ft of water to catch bass and keep from getting skunked. I don’t know diddly about C-rigging. Very rare for me to fish this way. Tried it for heck of it. Cooler water @ 25’, most likely. Better oxygen level for bass? I don’t know. Great post.
  7. Crankbaits in general, chatterbaits, slow rolling spinnerbaits, anytime you need to slow down a moving bait. Just out of curiosity what reel is this we are talking about?
  8. I just don't find that color seems to make all that much difference. The places I fish seem to be either on or off the lipless bite. I carry a lot of different colors, but aside from picking something largely chrome....or lot of red, I don't think it matters much, if any. The vibration and rattle, IMO, are much more important. Just seems that when there's a rattletrap, even a silent one within 20 yards of a bass...they know it. I just don't imagine them chasing down a sound and vibration, only to turn away at the last second because the bottom was blue instead of black. apologies, because, I acknowledge I'm one of the first to make fun of those who think they know what a bass thinks...lol
  9. I have used the shrink tubing trick. I had bought a bunch of arky jigs on a ridiculous deal with no keeper. It works well and it really easy to do. I have also seen where you tie a piece of weed guard on with small diameter braid and some super glue. Supposed to be great as well. Aaron Martens has a video out there about it. I may give that a try as well. I have over 50 of those jigs to experiment on!!
  10. I've tournament kayak fished for the last five years. I fish the KATS series in Texas. There is no doubt that a pedal drive does allow you to fish more water in the wind by far compared to a paddle driven craft. That said two of the guys that have literally "ruled" for a couple of years use paddle driven craft. Both of them are top notch sticks and one of them finished fourth at KBFNC and used a paddle. So I feel that the quality of the angler is more important then the type of drive they are using. I do feel that using trolling motors is a too much of a advantage and it will become more of a arms race to develop the fastest craft. Next thing you know we will be talking about Kayak hole shots!

  11. Nicely done!!! Went to La Cygne last Friday, and it wasn't bad. I tried mostly fishing plastics, ned, and jigs; need to get that dialed in because I had NO LUCK on those at all. I need to learn more about where to fish those, depth, etc; because right now I am lost on those. My buddy caught a 5lb'er on worm there, and a couple more as well. Ended up going to the outlet so I could at least catch something, which I did so at least the trip wan't a complete bust.
  12. Didn’t get out much this weekend! Bruins game Friday! Did some fishing Saturday after I got back from Boston. My swimbait got DESTROYED! Fish hit with force! Set hook nothing! Felt no fish! IDK what happened! I did manage a 3.5er on a smash tech weedless shad!
  13. I have a 4.3 to 1 that ive never really found a great application for. Would you guys use that for deep cranking as well?
  14. I really only need three while I’m out but through an addiction I have many patterns of the Rat-L-Traps. Chrome w/ black back Chrome w/ blue back Gold w/ black back I didn’t get them delivered yet but did order some of the Strike King Red Eyed shads from Cabela’s. I’ve read a lot about them on here. Seem to be the brand of choice here. I ordered some of the more productive patterns to compare to Lewis Brand. Price was right and deal was real. Worth the comparison.
  15. My two most productive colors for a Rattle Trap are chartreuse and chrome.
  16. Any chance you still have this?
  17. Dealers box have 3/ea, correct? Could you send pictures?
  18. I have a dealers box of each of the following colors: BRBN-Brown Bone CPS-Chartreuse Purple Shiner CSD- Chartreuse Shad GSD-Green Shad OPSD- Original Pearl Shad CTL- Chartreuse lime
  19. This is why I only fish coves that are feed by a creek.
  20. You must have seen the back drop picture in my profile 😎... How many and which color dt6s are you thinking?
  21. Or keep it for deep divers in a future setup
  22. I've done some of the butt ends on rods where the cork is different with no issues. I had an HMG with the cork you are referring to and I never had any issues with that rod pitting just a little discoloration. Could always try a small area but I bet you would be fine.
  23. I own a jar, I was wondering about EVA/cork hybrid (like HMG's handle)?
